Fernando Santos’ men are, of course, currently locked in action.

In their latest Nations League outing, the Portuguese have made the trip to Prague, for a meeting with the aforementioned Czech Republic.

And, as things stand, the evening’s visitors look well on their way to all three points.

In addition, before giving away a penalty (which was subsequently dragged wide by Patrik Schick), Cristiano Ronaldo was left with a nasty facial injury, evidence of which can be seen below:
